That’s a role Larissa says “feels like was made for me, honestly.” She’s not just protecting PepsiCo; in her mind she’s protecting what is practically the family business. Larissa is a third-generation PepsiCo employee — her grandfather was a VP on the team that struck the deal to trade Pepsi syrup to the Soviet Union in exchange for Stolichnaya vodka in 1972. Her mother and father met working in the IT department. Add in an uncle who was a merchandiser, and they have more than 75 years of PepsiCo service between them.
